Doris Irene Pennington, 85, formerly of Morenci, went home to be with Jesus, August 19, 2017, at Lynwood Manor in Adrian, Michigan. She was born in the family farmhouse in rural Wauseon on December 13, 1931, to Clair and Theola (Ziegler) Pennington.
Doris was crippled by polio at the age of 7, but with the help of her family and friends, she led a very full life. She lived the past 25 years at Lynwood Manor, where she was treated with compassion by the staff. She attended Bethany Assembly of God Church with the assistance of the bus ministry, and she dearly loved her church caregivers.
Doris is survived by her brother Richard (Marvolene) Pennington; five nephews, Mark (Beth) Pennington, Gary Pennington, Terry (Michelle) Pennington, Keith (Sheri) Pennington, and Dean (Teda) Pennington; along with numerous great nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Private graveside services for Doris will be held Wednesday, August 23, at Tedrow Cemetery with Rev. Dusty Paukin of Morenci Church of the Nazarene officiating. There will be no visitation hours. Local arrangements were entrusted to Eagle Funeral Home in Morenci.
